Scientific Name

Vanilla planifolia


Cranberry is one of three North American native fruits. At the first time it was just harvested from northeast America areas but after that it was cultivated in the other parts of North America as Wisconsin and northwest Pacific Ocean and Chile. American natives were the only ones that used this fruit in 1550 AD. Natives blended squeezed Cranberry with venison that it was named Pemicana. They called this fruit (wonder berry). The immigrants and travelers learned how to use Cranberry from natives in 1620 AD. Dutch and German immigrants called this fruit (crane-berry). This naming was due to resemblance of Cranberry blossoms color with head and neck of crane or this bird`s interest to eat that. Finally this short word changed to Cranberry.
